    they do not last that long, I think I get 10 or 12 seconds of CW at 120 chivarly. There is a sound made went it fades though.

    Icons would definately be appreciated. Curse Weapon can last 30 seconds, & they already give a timer for Divine Fury doesen`t last long either.

    Well, divine fury only lasts 15 seconds and it has an icon. Also for the audio cue many people, myself included, don't have the sound turned on.

    I'd like it too - but then, we are dealing with the same devs that think Chivalry is a Spellcaster's skill, like Magery, Spellweaving and Mysticism, and not a warrior's skill like Bushido & Ninjitsu.

    well that is true, but like many things in UO, things (systems, virtues, et al) are started and never completed. But I think I recall someone from the dev team stating that the 2 spells/blessings/whatever they are properly called were too short of time to be bothered with. I thought there was a fairly large discuss when those icons first came out?

    In fact, let's get icons for EVERY player-affecting effect in game... let's get them so they all appear in the same size, and that there's consistency between them.

    Please!!!

    They were discussed when the buff bar appeared and from what I can remember people were wanting them to put them in the bar, but they never did because they didn't think it was worth it being such short duration. I think they said something like "if we have all effects in the bar it will be huge", but I say... who cares. I know what to look for on the bar.

    Curse weapon especially should be on the bar. It lasts for like 30 seconds, and its VERY important to know if its active.

    It wouldn't help, the sound effects are completely inaudible for the spells.

    It's been brought up many times in the past.... The response has always been no.

    But still...

    No they don't I would have to agree with the request for icons for these as most of the time I don't play with headphones or speakers.

    I'd love to see an icon for those spells. Not having them is one of my biggest UO related pet-peeves.
